Even a month ago it was reported about a possible appointment and the beginning of June Fabio Capello commented about it: 
– I have not had any contact with PSG, but you should never say never in life. But for now, this is really such that I work in Russia, he told Sovietskiy Sports.

The Italian is since autumn 2012 coach of Russia, and is meant to guide the team over the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. PSG must therefore solve Capello from the contract – it is stated cost € 3 million – to get him to Paris.

“I like men with power and attitude and Capello believed in me.
‘You have nothing to prove, I know who you are and what you can, he said one of the first few days, and it gave me peace of mind.’ ”
